    Chant D'Automne

    In the bottle: Getting heaps of dead leaves, followed by vetiver and small touches of musk and tobacco. Wet: Charred wood and tobacco come to the forefront, while the leaves/vetiver take a step back. The amber is starting to become more of a presence. Dry: Softened, burned wood and leaves with a trickle of tobacco. As it continued to dry, the amber continued to soften the earthy/smoky notes. This particular blend has a handful of my favorite notes - I'm glad I leapt at a bottle! It reminds me of late autumn bonfires, and it's quite cozy as Lucchesa mentioned.

    Pomegranate Smoke Hair Gloss

    This is an absolute winner! The pomegranate is nicely tart and I'm positively charmed by the cypress really shining through. If you're hesitant when it comes to oudh, this one hangs back quite a bit.

    The Shadowed Veil

    In the bottle: Getting all of the notes except for the pomegranate incense. Wet: Much the same as in the bottle, slightly more redolent. Pomegranate is sort of peeking around through the edges. Dry: All notes are present and accounted for! It's quite smooth and sultry with just a touch of grittiness from the patchouli. A very alluring scent! It got a bit sweeter when freshly applied, but it slid back into earthy territory straightaway.

    The Blood Must Flow

    In the bottle: Well-blended, smoldering wood with faint chamomile. Wet: Primarily woods and resins, the chamomile and DB have come forward just a little bit more. Dry: Strong, resinous woods with tendrils of chamomile and smoke. I really love how much this smells like damp, burning wood. It's very slightly sweet, but overall it's woody and quite unisex.

    Sustained Boos

    In the bottle: Getting lots of coffee bean/nutmeg/clove, but it's all cooled down by the aldehyde (?). Smells sweet to me - kind of like the center of Tootsie Pop. Wet: More of the spice is coming out! The nag champa/benzoin are in the back with a very faint whiff of sandalwood. Dry: Far less chilly! Lots of warm spices and wood, the amber and benzoin are lending a small hint of sweetness. This morphed a LOT - overall it kinda reminds me of coming in out of the cold and having a hot drink. ☕ I'm not sure why it smelled so sweet to me in the bottle, but once it's on my skin the spices really come out!

    In the imp: Very astringent juniper overpowering everything else! Wet: Slightly less juniper, getting more of the patchouli. Drydown: The juniper is weirdly gone, or at least really toned down. Now it smells like petrichor, which I absolutely love! Dry: Still lots of petrichor (presumably from the patch), with some wet rose/pine peeking through. Verdict: I was really surprised by this one; the initial bottle sniff turned me off, but I'm really glad I gave it a shot! I'll definitely be getting a full bottle of this once the imp runs out.
